Which book? I've read more than a few. Well mainly the works of D.T. Suzuki.

Cool link too.
Buddhism and Buddhists in China by Lewis Hodus.

You should all read the Warlord Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell.
It's all about the foundations of the British Isles.
A lot of battles.
Books for men.

I read the Japanese/Chinese equivalent.

Nothing against my former British over lords, I just like the east.

When I move into western history, which I have, just no tin full, I'll pick it up.

I spend lot of money on books that get piled up in my library, I hope to some day get to.

Read The Journeyer by Gary Jennings.
All about Marco Polo's lustful adventures in the near and far east.
I really enjoyed it. It's very racist, sexist and entertaining.

I had a friend recommend "Bad luck and trouble", authored by Lee Child. Has anyone ever heard of or read this book?

Lee Child's Reacher series are great!!
Total unstoppable riveting action.
I'd start with the first in the series which is called Killing Floor.
Author Lee Child: Jack Reacher Novels

Stephen Hunter's Sniper novels are also great.
